Music Machines and Machine Music in Jean Tinguely’s Oeuvre
At the center of the catalogue for the exhibition of the same name at the Museum Tinguely, Basel, curated by Annja Müller-Alsbach and Sandra Beate Reimann, stand the sound-producing machine sculptures of Jean Tinguely. Tinguely’s sculptures generate noises, sounds, and apparently random, self-performing music. This musical side then reached a climax with the four “Méta-Harmonie” music machines between 1978 and 1985.
The catalogue and exhibition address developments both in music, with works that deal with machines, and in which machines comprise the instruments and/or producers of sounds for pieces. The spectrum extends from the avant-garde until today.
